Reports are that Minnesota simply wants cap relief for Al Jefferson. They'd trade him to the Mavs tonight for Eric Dampier's contract, but Dallas is holding out and wants Minnesota to take a couple bad contract back in return. The Jazz are also in the mix with Boozer's trade exception. Would bringing in Al Jefferson be a large financial undertaking for Wyc? Most definitely. But the time is now to win. We need more ammo to take on the Heat and revenge the Finals defeat to the Lakers. Jefferson didn't have the strongest of years as he recovered from knee surgery, but as Doc has said many of times (in regards to KG), it takes a year to come back from knee surgery. Jefferson is only 25 and with Rondo would form our future.

I wanted Michael Beasley, because he was being given away for a song, but that ship has sailed. Al Jefferson would be a steal to reacquire. He's only available because the Minnesota GM is an idiot. One could argue that it would look bad for the Wolves to trade him back to Boston, but Kahn hasn't avoided looking bad much up to this point. The Mavs and Jazz are both in the Western Conference with the Wolves, so one would think it would behoove them to move Al back East. If the Celtics have to sweeten the deal with a first or two, because of the KG trade factor, so be it. Some combination of 'Sheed, Lafayette,  Gaffney and one of Davis or Perk would get it done. Or Danny could acquire a trade exception from Memphis for Tony Allen and use that instead of Davis or Perk. The point is a young 20/10 guy is available for the taking. A player with the best post moves in my opinion since McHale and Hakeem. He also can board and I really don't want to hear about his defense. He's been stuck on putrid teams, but put him with KG and in our system and you'd be pleasantly surprised. This is a no brainer. Pounce Danny. Pounce.

    getting Al would be epic. I don't think we should trade Perk though. I just hope Danny gets something good done because right now we're not looking great...

    That would be fantastic. Trade Sheed's contract and Glen Davis. A foursome of Garnett, Jefferson, O'Neal and Perkins would be lethal.

    You wanted Beasley, but that ship has sailed. Yet you call Kahn an idiot, when he's the one who was able to land Said Talented Headcase. Way to trip all over yourself.

    Also - wolves have abloslutely no need for Sheed, Davis, Perk, or anyone else on Celt's roster for that matter. They'd make room for Rondo perhaps, but even that seems unlikely.

    I love when douchebags leave stupid comments under "anonymous." I did want Beasley who was being given away by the Heat. We are in dire need of a young, athletic front court player to compliment Rondo. What makes Kahn an idiot (well one of reasons) is that he negates good moves with bonehead moves. Trading for a PF in Beasley and then trading away a PF in Al Jefferson for nothing is idiotic.

    They'd "perhaps" make room for Rondo? LOL. They're accepting nothing for Big Al. Kahn would wet his pants to get another point guard and do it three times over if the said point guard was actually any good. Perhaps they'd accept Rondo? haha.

    Next time you want to come talk shit on here at least leave your name. Whether its "Kahn's son," Dick head" or whatever.

    JR, thanks for replying to that stupid comment directly and making all the right points. I wanted to post something when I read it but it's better coming from the guy who wrote the original piece.

    Must be Khan's Son with that Rondo comment. Rubio and Flynn combined wouldn't match his game.

    Sadly, I think the Jefferson ship has sailed towards Salt Lake...

  10. JR says:

    Thanks ThomasJ!

    Yeah Roswell, Al to Utah. Will be nice to see him back in the playoffs, but as you can see he was totally gettable. It's a pity because we're seriously lacking a post scorer, an offensive rebounder, and youth and he would have given us all 3.

    You know we've made it big when we have haters posting comments! Sucks we didn't get Big Al. Also sucks Miami picked up Mike Miller. That was a smart signing.
